The person training my coach did mention single sale labelled packages were coming soon. I'm sure the price will be higher.

Sorry you are going through this. Your girls are more important. Sounds like you made the right decision to be "done". for you!

My kids have been nuts for two days also! No testing just rowdy! Thank you for the support, my kids are my world so onward and upward we go!

That is strange, I have a supply of products, doc doesn't even track I just go in and buy what I want when I want, but he doesn't carry brownies or white cheddar puffs and if I want them I have to order 3 boxes of each.

So I went to dinner again, lol starting to get comfy. Went to a Chinese buffet that has a Mongolian grill. Had broccoli, bean sprouts, bell peppers, chicken, and shrimp with garlic, just cooked in water then added soy sauce. Definitely stayed OP but not sure if I got enough meat or veggies, it's kind of hard to judge still, but I didn't go over. I figured better under than over.

I have reading comments about how much energy people get and I am just so sluggish and weak feeling. Maybe I need to add an extra alternative product each day?? My clinic is usually out of ready-to-drink/ pre-made drinks, so I bought some EAS Carb Control and Premier Protein snack drinks to take with me when I'm out all day. So, I could do an extra that way, even though they're not selling me more than 21.
I had four packets a day until I went under 200 lbs.. I had great losses and had no problems transitioning to three a day.

She told me that part of the reason I may feel the way I do is that I have previously identified completely who I am with my weight, and being a bigger girl, and now that I have lost almost 90 lbs, I don't really know who I am, so I have to rediscover who I am within my new body. It will take some time, but I highly recommend if anyone feels the way I do to talk to someone, a friend, a mentor, or even a professional. I know with graduation lingering in a little over a month, and with a lot of emotional stuff that has happened to me this year so far, I took a courageous step in my life, and scheduled an appointment with the counselor here on campus... I thought, since I am going to be a psychologist, I should probably have the experience of going to one anyways
Just wanted to share whats going on in my life. Also thats part of the reason I havent been on here as much.
IP love to you all!
Deana
Great to hear from you Deana, I totally agree with your outlook on emotions and how the weight loss affects us. There's a lot more going on than shedding pounds... it comes off pretty fast with IP and it can be a lot to wrap our heads around (and emotions!!) Thanks for talking about this aspect of our journey!

Default glued to the scale ...HELP

Hi folks,

I have now been on IP for 16 days. I am staying100% OP. I am not losing much weight but I am satisfied with the inches I have lost ... I can feel it in everything I do.
My problem is, I find myself hopping on to the scale at least 3 times a day and I get discouraged by the way my weight seems to fluctuate throughout the day .

I am sure I ought not to weigh myself so often.....

should I just bury my scales?

Made it through the first night of Parent-Teacher conferences ... PTO got us pizza for dinner, so I just stayed in the front office and played board games with the art teacher. Our conventional testing finished yesterday, new computerized testing will be next month, spring break starts Friday, and the weather is all over the place, so the kids are a bit crazy!

NSV: Three different people commented today about my face being thinner.

At my place, they are the same price for singles as they would be for the box, divided by 7. No increase for having them labeled individually.
